The Minutes of the 2012 AGM have been posted on the News/Info page.
More than 50 teams play pétanque (the French game of boules) in Rutland every Tuesday evening in the spring and summer. Most are based at our splendid local hostelries.
The league was established in 1993 with nine teams and has been growing ever since
It now has 6 divisions of between 8 and 10 teams in each, 3 local divisions ( North, Central and South), Division 2, Division 1 and a Premier Division. We also hold the Greene King Cup and the Turner Plate Competition, in which all teams play, which is played during the season.
Pétanque is a game which all can enjoy at any age and with any level of skill and the equipment is not expensive. Usually all that is required is a set of three matching boules which can be acquired from any good sports shop. Go to the "contacts/links" page to find various companies/websites which will guide you on what is required
